Princeton Wedding PhotographerPrinceton University is an ideal backdrop for a wedding. The architecture is elegant and austere and the entire campus is warm and inviting. Whether it’s sunny or cloudy outside the Princeton grounds provide a fantastic setting for portraits of the bride and groom, bridal party, and families. At this Princeton wedding the bride was walking from her hotel to see her fiancé for their first look. I loved the look of her custom gown and her neutral Valentino heels. I wanted to capture the grace in the movement of her dress so I waited until the bride was walking down the stone steps and the wind picked up the hem of her dress. I used my 70-200mm lens at f/4.5 so that I could ensure that the shoes and a large portion of the hem of her wedding dress would be in focus. I made sure that the post-production of the image matched the grey of the clouds so that the image perfectly illustrated the feel of the moment.
